AbrégéEmbodiments of the invention integrate a contactless media reader with sensors to detect that an object is within the contactless media reader operating field and optionally detect the position, orientation and speed of the object as it approaches the contactless media reader. The object can be, for example, a contactless fare media such as a contactless smartcard,a personal processing device such as a smart phone, personal computer, tablet computer or the like, or the user's hand, one or more fingers, or both. Embodiments may use one or more distance/position sensors to determine the position of the contactless fare media relative to the contactless media reader. Accordingly, embodiments of the present invention enhance contactless media reader performance by adding user interaction capabilities and providing feedback to the contactless fare media user.
